After a fruitful meeting in 2018 in Palma de Mallorca, it is the great pleasure of the EADPH to invite you to Ghent (Belgium) for the 24th congress of the European Association of Dental Public Health (EADPH). The theme of the congress is “Patient-centered care: multi-sectoral approaches to improving oral health” and will discuss and debate the biggest challenges to improve (oral) health for the current and future generations.
Against a background of aging societies, health inequalities, and increasing diversity in socio-economic background of the National populations across Europe, it is essential to include the patient and the public at large as active participants in care, planning, and management, taking into account their wishes, values, and beliefs. There is a wide consensus that (oral) care should be integrated across conditions, health workers, and settings throughout the life course. However, to date, progress has been slow in achieving this goal.
